There you go, every week, letting us all know where you're walking then....


Whomp.... you hit us with some lovely photographs just when the weather's turning and summer seems a dim and distant memory...


Much appreciated. Thank you for posting them  :)

Thanks for the photos. Its something I've learned to apprecxiate, walking in Kent and Sussex can be very satisfying. OK, no mountains but still a wide variety of landscapes to enjoy and surprisingly rural in lots of places. For me only two drawbacks, the possibility of meeting wild boar when I wild camp (just not sure how I would handle it) and the outragoeos cost of staying on some of the campsites!

Forgot to add to my previous post.
Great use of rule of thirds.

That's it we're going up there tomorrow morning and lunch at The Royal Oak, Hooksway, going to be sunny  :)

I've walked the Southdowns Way many times over the years, the last time was two years ago, never heard or saw a boar. I wild camped on the last trip, I got to know all the secret and best places from when I was a member of the Backpackers Club which existed in the 70's 80's, I still have their
badge on my racksack. :) Most of the camps sites have sadly closed some years ago.  :(
I now find camping too uncomfortable for me old bones.  ;)
